Gorgeous, white snow white horse
perfect b/w...

Catherine said...

Pure white against the snow.
Enchanting.

Robin said...

The rider looks almost out of place (not to mention he's apparently lost his head as well LOL) with the white horse against the white snow. Fun shot!

magiceye said...

looks like a scene from fairy tales!!

Mojo said...

Exceptional work -- the rider could use a head, but I can understand why you'd have cropped it out. And the rest is just too good not to publish!

Wonderful shot!

Paz said...

Ohhhh! Ahhhh! I like Jan's description. It IS an enchanting scene.

michael bird said...

Verry nifty. It caught me off guard - almost stepped aside to get out of the way of the charging white steed.

George said...

What a tremendous picture. I like the emphasis on the horse rather than the rider.

Daryl said...

It is enchanted and totally romantic ... I am so jealous ...

WillThink4Wine said...

Oh, that is so magical! Just fabulously romantic!

Lovely composed picture.
It would almost seem that the horse was made of snow. :)

starnitesky said...

A beautiful shot in the snow!

Janie said...

Wow, this is just a beautiful photo. I have a white horse, and I can imagine him in the picture, trotting through the snow.

Nicole, HU said...

WOW!
That's one awesome shot.
It has something unreal to eat, like out of a fairy tale.
Well done!

Thought the picture of the ice palace was great but then I scrolled down and found this - great perspective and full of movement.
